Dominique Ansel's Wonderland Party was part NYCWFF event, and part launch party for the pastry wizard's first cookbook Dominque Ansel - The Secret Recipes. On Friday night at the High Line Hotel, he and a number of the city's top pastry chefs dazzled guests with trippy desserts. The Cronut King, who tore his meniscus earlier in the day, limped around the venue greeting colleagues, signing books, and taking AnSelfies with adoring fans.

The Breakroom Burger makes its debut at NYCWFF this year.

While the New York City Wine and Food Festival is known for bringing chefs in from around the globe, two local guys from Chinatown are aiming to leave the biggest impression. Michael Tang and Christopher Wong, co-owners of the year-old Breakroom (83 Baxter Street; 212-227-2802), are participating in their first Blue Moon Burger Bash, one of the festival's most popular events. A magnet for celebrity chefs like Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay, the bash has helped elevate the status of New York chefs like Josh Capon -- the executive chef and partner behind Lure Fishbar, B&B Winepub, and El Toro Blanco -- whose "bash-style burger" has won the People's Choice Award four times, including last year.
